Not Rock (2010)
I know Insouciant basically means “jaunty” or “carefree” to an extent, but honestly, this band is anything but. Despite the simplicity of the sound, there’s a surprising level of subtle, below-the-initial-listen intricacy here that stays away from going overkill and manages to foster a very relaxing atmosphere with a bit of a spine in there that’s abotu to bubble over into from ambiance into Fugazi-style singalongs.
This band has a very definite Look! Mexico vibe, a post-punk/ambient/post-hardcore vibe that borrows equally from the well of Americana and folk, Dischord Records, and catchy pop. It’s a sound that’s slowly but surely growing on me, and I like it.
